Taking care of wildlife
In this article, we will be looking at some aspects of making your garden a home for wildlife. In order to do this, we must create an environment that is almost identical to the natural habitat that animals and insects enjoy.
I am sure that you may have gone on a nature walk and observed animals and insects in their natural habitat.
You remember how excited you got to see those birds flying around, to hear them singing so beautifully and watching them as they took care of their young by feeding them and building nests for them? With great excitement, you took out your camera to capture the moment or maybe your video camera and started recording.
What about those beautiful colorful butterflies that you saw as they quietly and gracefully went about their daily activity feeding, resting, flying, or taking a drink of water or nectar from plants where it had collected without a care in the world. ‘Happy little creatures they are’ may have been your thought as you observed them.
After all the events of your day, the enjoyment received from watching these wonders of nature was worth it all. So by providing a natural habitat for these creatures you would be providing them with a home to feed and grow their young and that place can be your very own backyard buzzing with the many sounds of different species of birds singing and the sight of many different colored flowers. What a sight to behold!
Talk about becoming one with nature.
I’m sure by now we can see the benefits of what can happen just by giving nature a helping hand.
